In my part of the world we say you are a fool if your passion for a pursuit overcomes all practical sense. I am a stitching fool, and I stitch foolishness.

Vines and Leaves

So I have stitched the pocket placement and one side of the vine and leaves today.

Obviously, I still need to grow some leaves on the other vine. I will do that forthwith.

But first, some enabling.

Jenny Adin-Christie has added to the aviary. She has designed an owl, and OMG, he is wonderful. He is so wonderful, BDE has also added her name to the notification list when kits are available. Obviously, I have, too. You can see him (I've already named mine George) on Jenny's Instagram page.

And Jane Nicholas has a new book coming out in the fall with designs inspired by Japanese Crests. She's been teasing us with them for a bit--she's teaching one for EGA National this year, one appears in the Inspirations book on pin cushions--and the book is available for preorder.

Must stitch faster . . .
